Boardman woman accused of duct-taping child now out of jail

A Boardman mother is accused of committing a serious crime against her son.

The boy's grandmother found the township woman's son duct taped to a metal chair in the basement of the family's Roche Way home just after 11:30 a.m. Monday.

The grandmother of the 11-year-old told Boardman police officers she was worried about the welfare of her grandson and when she arrived at the house she found him taped to a metal chair in the basement.

Detective-Sergeant Chuck Hillan tells 21 News, "The child's legs were duct taped to the legs of the chair around his ankles, each leg, and then his hands were duct taped together in front of him, and then he had a piece of duct tape across his mouth."

Once the duct tape was removed police saw dark bruises on the boy's face and neck and rushed him to Akron Children's Hospital.

The child's grandmother stated he could have hit his own face because he was upset.  She advised that he often lies about what happens to him.

"He does appear to be okay.  He has been released.  He's in the care of relatives," Detective-Sergeant Hillman said.

Police then went immediately to the YMCA in Boardman where they located the 11-year-old's sister and his mother Susan Malysa.  The mother was arrested on the spot and charged with child endangering.

She appeared in Boardman Court to answer to the charge Tuesday morning and has been able to bond out of jail.

In a police report, the 11-year-old's grandmother told police the boy allegedly smeared feces on the walls and stuffed animals Monday night according to his mother.

It's unclear if duct taping the child was allegedly the mother's cruel attempt at somehow trying to control him.

In April of 2016, the same child reported to Glenwood Middle School officials that his mother hit him with a hammer.  At the time, the school immediately contacted police.  The case was investigated and the child was removed from the home and placed with another relative for a while.  But it appears Malysa was never charged in that case.

Attempts to reach the mother and grandmother about this most recent incident have not been successful.
